In The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit One Year On: Progress, Challenges, and the Way Forward for Economic Relations, the companion paper to the Brown Capital Management Africa Forum event of the same name, Dr. Witney Schneidman assesses the progress made and challenges encountered in the year since the historic summit. He analyzes the status of important programs and initiatives discussed at the summit – including AGOA, Power Africa, and the President’s Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa, as well as investment commitments from the U.S. government, intergovernmental organizations, and private companies – and offers recommendations on the way forward for U.S.-Africa economic engagement.
The Brown Capital Management Africa Forum is a 5 year best-in-class platform for bringing together key business, political, and academic leaders around emerging economic, trade, and investment issues in Africa, and in U.S.-Africa relations.
